then mayor good gavin newsom -- i'm sorry-excuse me, i missed a question here. my apologies. okay. this yes is for mr. everett, miss olague and miss selby. this is where i want to be. >> okay. >> thank you. again for mr. everett, miss olague and my selby. over the years there have been various proposals to allow non-citizen members of san francisco to vote in city elections. in your opinion, which city elections, if any, should be open to participation by non-citizen residents and which non-citizen residents should be allowed to vote in those elections? >> the harsh reality is that so many non-citizens still have children in our public schools here in san francisco, throughout the state of california and throughout the united states. as all of you undoubtedly know. with that being said, it's vitally important that those parents still have a say in the education of their children. i would certainly support and promote voting by those parents in school board elections in san francisco. by implication own a community college election would fit in that rubric, to support college advancement t

that are making a difference. (vo) here's how you can connect with the gavin newsom show. >>i'm an outsider in the inside. ideas are the best politics. [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> gavin: one of the most pressing and probably long-term damaging problems for low-income children in this country is malnutrition, leading to childhood obesity. that's a key challenge facing carolyn miles president and ceo of save the children. >> save the children focuses on two areas, health and making sure that children survive the age of five, that's a huge objective to us, and then education. children getting through basic education with the skills they need. >> gavin: before we talk education, on the health side, five, why is that a magical number? or was it just a number that sort of median age in some respects for those that are suffering certain chronic conditions? >> yeah, the reason why five is so critical the vast majority of preventive deaths, things you can prevent occur before the age of five. right now six 6 million to 7 million children guy of preventable things, most of them in the developing world
- mayor gavin newsom asked what we have learned. he allowed me to develop the programs with the emergency management and a host of different departments to introduce a bigger emphasis on preparing for and implementing a recovery and making resilience and recovery more the norm of how we do things in our city. çq levels of response we have. we created new relationships with established agencies, the red cross, the apartment building inspection, the planning department. but most importantly, we created a spiritç that is very consistt with fema'sçç national disastr recovery from work. you have to start building capacity in your communitims. you cannot abandon them in the time of need. the only way you doç that is to create those relationships now. you do not have to talk about disasterç and to use that wordn every conversation to get them better prepared. you can talk about mitigation, how the neighbors come together and did greener, how they help us to create bike paths and build affordable housing. when you create those relationship with the different communities in our city a
to newspapers establish credibility? i saw this news reporter who put a piece on youtube about gavin newsom just walking away. so how did these organizations establish credibility? how are people able to see the problems with bias that will never come up? there is also a problem with advertisers, backers. a millionaire putting $500,000 or $1 million into a newspaper, and he will expect something in return. he may not want his coverage to be negative. so there are all these things. i wondered if anybody had any general comments about those. >> that is a really difficult problem. if we think about the way we understand journalism today, it really is an historical aberration. that is not cutting back. we had objective journalism, which created shared narratives, but the truth is what we only saw was the narrative from a particular perspective. now, we have chaos. i'm not saying that is not a problem, but on the other hand, we need to think about the fact that we have a lot more voices and a lot more information, and we need to develop citizens that understand not only how to read a news story and u
, 195 million dollar investment that will not increase your property taxes. that's what gavin newsom assigned me to and i worked hard to accomplish that. we don't fix it today, we're going to pay for it in the long run, our aging infrastructures exacerbate existing costs, we know that, and that's why we have placed a great amount of discipline in our all city assets. when we do this, we've shown we can build our assets and maintain them on time and within budget and for our parks bond as an example, the 2008 tax bond, all of them came in under budget or at budget and certainly on time and this means this new $195 million dollars will provide nearly 1300 new construction jobs. that's how we get our city moving. and we're not going to move backwards. we have to move forward and i want our city government to move forward at the same time. something that i had hoped not to see on the ballot, an effort to tear down our hetch hetchy and question whether and where we would ever get the cleanest water this country has from the hetch hetchy source. i have said over and over again this dan

to employ outside agency for outside audits and what happens is that the mayor at that time, mr. gavin newsom, along with the controller, mr. ed harrington who later became the general manager of the puc undermined the revenue bond oversight committee so they would have complete control over the monies and eliminating public oversight. the proof of the pudding the deck was stacked with staff members from the puc to contract with the city services auditing division of the controller's office. so what happened, the result was the fox was guarding the hen. >> supervisor, if i could ask you a question, so you are able to finish your comments. >> i appreciate it. >> i would like you to explain a little bit more what if you can go through your remarks in terms of what you were trying to say there? >> i don't want to take away from the other people here and i certainly -- you know exactly what i'm saying. this was a political move to get complete control of those monies without any independent oversight. now i appreciate your effort to extend this committee, but let me be very clear h
line to the gavin newsom show. >>focus on the folks that are making a difference, that are not just dreamers, but doers. >>(narrator) join the conversation. >> gavin: my guest is "new york times" columnist nicholas kristof. the topic is why he's so passionate about fighting human trafficking and how he got the white house involved. >> gavin: you were in the clinton global initiative. president obama came in and took the time, interestingly to give a speech focused on human trafficking, something very near and dear a topic for you. were you surprised coming from the u.n. assembly, that he would take the entire focus of the speech on human trafficking? >> i was thrilled. one of the frustrations is that nobody pays attention to it. i have a friend who was trafficked herself, and we all kind of knew this was coming, we heard about it. she couldn't sleep the night before. she stayed up all night and was texting friends at 4:00 a.m. and these kids who were trafficked, whether they were trafficked in the bay area or trafficked in india, they are the most voiceless of the voiceless. and to
